HELP! I’M MOLTING . . .

My beautiful chickens have been so fun this past year!

They are still fun, but now the Americanas are molting and just aren’t as beautiful as they once were.  The Rhode Island Reds aren’t molting yet, so they are still beautiful.

Poor little girls!  Poor us, because when the molt, well, they don’t lay eggs!  We really miss their beautiful blue green eggs!

When not molting they are very reliable layers, more than carrying their weight in the production business.

These photos are from a couple of weeks ago, so they are starting to look a bit better.

Hopefully that means we’ll have blue-green eggs again soon.

But then I fully expect all 6 Rhode Island Reds to molt at the same time, and we’ll be missing the brown eggs.
